Back to school time

The Autumn term has begun in earnest this week and some schools get the sports scene going straightaway. I don’t photograph Lacrosse very often but I have enough knowledge of how the game is played and therefore where all the key action will be on the field. The vital piece of information is how big […]

The joys of spring and penalty shoot-outs

Picking the right spot to take photos of a penalty shoot-out is very important. You can never tell what’s going to unfold in front of your camera but you have to optimise your chances of getting the best shots of the football action and celebrations. On Sunday I was supporting a charity football match in […]

Back with the programme…

I love surprises, especially when you arrive at an event to find the main sponsor has chosen one of your photographs to represent them and the event.

Laughing All The Way To The Bank (Almost)

I was delighted to learn recently that I have been appointed as the RFU schools rugby photographer for the NatWest Schools Cup for 2014-2015. It’s a great delight for me to still be a part of the national schools rugby competition for the 10th year in a row so it does make me smile (that’s […]

“All you have to do is press a button.”

My wife somehow managed to simplify my job a few years ago by using the above phrase and therefore I have to thank her for inspiring my latest blog. Much of my work comes from clients who have a bit of experience taking photos with cameras and smart phones and they know how difficult it […]
